EgyptAir flight MS 804 was a regularly scheduled international flight from Paris
(Charles de Gaulle Airport) to Cairo International Airport in Egypt.

The flight went missing over the Mediterranean Sea in an area between Greece and Egypt on May 19, 2016.

56passengers and 10 crew members were on board the pictured Airbus A320-232 SU-GCC.

Egyptian authorities believe the plane most likely crashed into the sea.

According to Wikipedia, “Greek Defence Minister Panos Kammenos said that, based on radar data, flight MS 804 veered off course shortly after entering the Egyptian Flight Information Region (FIR). At an altitude of 37,000 feet, the aircraft made a 90-degree left turn, followed by a 360-degree right turn and began to descend. Radar contact was lost at an altitude of about 10,000 feet.”
